About Juliet

Born: September 16, 2005

Gloria is a girl from Northern Uganda, an area devastated by civil war and the LRA. During a 2016 mission trip Gloria approached the team during hut-to-hut evangelism and asked if she could join our program and get an education. The team was struck with Gloria’s boldness and requested an assessment of her vulnerability. Although Gloria has a mother and father who work tirelessly as peasant farmers they do not have the ability to send her to school. Just a few months later Gloria was accepted into our Hope Family and began school. Gloria’s dedication to her studies continues to amaze and we believe a bright future is ahead for her.

Uganda is called the ‘Pearl of Africa’ for its lush landscapes, unique tribal cultures, magnificence and biodiversity. Uganda struggled after gaining its independence in the 60’s and suffered from decades of civil and economic unrest. By the mid 80’s Uganda was left with hundreds of thousands of lost lives from tribal warfare, rebel attacks and the AIDS epidemic. The devastating effects upon Ugandan families cannot be overstated.  The end result is a country where the fastest growing segment of society is children.  Although it is a slow climb back to its previous glory, the Ugandan culture is strong and the sense of family and community is unrivaled. God is at work in and through this incredible country and people.
